This information is for general information and is not to be regarded as a securities recommendation.

Where performance returns are quoted “After fees” then this assumes reinvestment of distributions and is calculated using exit prices which take into account management costs but not tax you may pay as an investor. Where “Growth” returns are shown, these represent the percentage change in the value of units in the fund excluding any distributions paid. “Distribution” returns equal the difference between the “Total return (After fees)”, and the Growth return. Where performance returns are quoted “After fees and tax”, they are calculated using exit prices which take into account management costs and taxes paid within the trust up to a maximum of 15%. Where performance returns are quoted “Before fees and tax”, they exclude the effects of management costs and any taxes. In the case of the Pendal Managed Cash Fund and the Pendal Stable Cash Plus Fund all returns are calculated using the average of the daily distribution yields and assume monthly reinvestment of distributions.
